Winter is over, both meteorologically and officially for the 46ers, so Kathy and I toted around Keene Valley and Keene (New York) enjoying our last day here.
The day after our hike of the Santanoni Range, we let our knees rest and spent some time toting around Keene and Keene Valley.
The clouds were absolutely perfect for infrared photography!
I decided that some of the shots from my excellent vacation could use a black & white film emulation. These are digital shots converted to b&w with a (real) TMax 400 film texture.
The views from 4,736-foot Gothics were wonderful. We had a perfect day again.
On two of our rest days, we had nice intermittent cloud cover making for dramatic infrared shots. The last shot is the view of Hurricane Mountain from our rental, and you can see the fire tower in the distance.
Despite our unpreparedness in pretty much all aspects, we made it to the summit. It was breathtaking. 4,627-foot Giant dominates the Keene valley to the east of the Great Range, offering spectacular sweeping views.
